Google Chromecast Audio
|Turn the volume up on superior sound when you plug the Google Chromecast Audio Digital Media Streamer into your phone or tablet. The compact, palm-sized, black device is an affordable way to stream songs from numerous sources, including applications as well as hardware. The streamer amplifies your audio via Wi-Fi with lossless high-resolution sound, which offers a high-quality listening experience. As you scroll through your playlists, you'll see a Cast button that will instantly begin streaming your songs through the speaker to immerse you in sound. The smooth streaming of the Chromecast is skip-free, with audio performance that's detailed, rich, and dynamic. The streamer works with a variety of popular music apps, including Spotify, Pandora, and Google Play. The multi-room feature lets you hear your music from anywhere, continuously, and enjoy letting your mobile phone do double duty as a remote that helps you select what songs to play. The voice control feature works alongside your Google Home device to let you use voice commands to select or skip songs or adjust the volume you're listening at. The Chromecast connects easily for use in seconds via an included cable to the AUX input on any stereo, and you'll need a digital cable to connect it optically. Though the Google Chromecast is optimal for Android users, iOS users can also enjoy the benefit of this wireless audio streaming device. One of the most lightweight, affordable media streamers available, the Chromecast is a functional option when it comes to enjoying music wirelessly and portably. You don't need HDMI to cast sound to the Chromecast, making other hardware unnecessary, and you can even connect the speakers you already have to maximize your music experience by creating bold sound with the Chromecast device, or use the Chromecast along with a home theater system for a multi-speaker setup.|

Convenient Streamer for your devices
The new Chromecast online is rumored to work without wifi to stream peer-to-peer from your Android phone to your TV. This is not the case. I purchased the new Chromecast already owning an old Chromecast because I travel a lot and am not able to connect to Hotel wifi through the Chromecast so I was hoping to stream directly. Also, I like streaming media files like .mkv and .mp4 from my phone to the device. A third party file explorer app must be used to do this as the Chromecast app does not have native support. The app does allow you to stream YouTube and mirror your Android phone screen which is great!

Poor performance with spotify
It is easy to set up and audio quality is great. However, there are many problems while playing spotify. It sometimes skips songs, it fails to skip songs when I touch the skip button, sometimes i have to reset the chromecast audio device for it to start responding again. Poor performance, I'm not impressed.

Still a Few Warts, But Performs Better Than Apple's AirPlay
I would give this unit 5 stars if the directions for setup (especially online) were up to date and agreed with the reality of the device itself. Also, I was about to give it a poor rating because I could not get it to cast TuneIn Radio, my favorite source of streaming stations. But, then, in some arcane location, I saw a note about updating the firmware, and that worked...well, almost perfectly. Again, the directions for updating were not quite up to date with reality, but I figured that one out. And, as for TuneIn Radio, I find that, with all my iOS devices, I have to try to cast a station and receive an error message that the stream is not compatible, and then I have to dismiss the TuneIn app (flick it up off the screen), and restart it, and then it works. This is consistent behavior. I don's know why it happens. Once I get things rolling, there is no interruption (for hours of play) such as I experience with AirPlay (using the AirEnabler dongle), so this is now my preferred device, despite some minor warts. I hope that Google will work out the kinks in future updates.

DAC/Headphone-Integrated Amps are the general solution
DAC/Headphone Amps are the general solution, but this item is a Sonos killer. I used existing AV, HiFi, and radios to multicast audio to my home. Google (and Amazon) put their digital streaming products on sale as "multi-pack" offerings. Watch for the Black Friday sales and offers. When you purchase a used item like this, you can not get any warranty repair or take advantage of any Google Play Store offers that would go along with the item. For travel, auto, and home headphone listening I will use a dedicated DAC/Headphone amp, which is still compatible with iTunes, Google Play, and my own collection of streaming music. Expect the price of Chromecast Audio hardware to drop in order to compete with the multitude of new 2016 DAC offerings coming from Asia. Keep in mind that the Cast App and even Google Play Music doesn't even yet offer an equalizer-compressor-dsp software module (either in Chromecast Audio hardware or smartphone Google Cast software) to improve on the audio quality. MSFT PC's have been doing this for years. Go figure :( This is truly a good time to be getting into digital audio. Global capitalism is providing the consumer many, many good choices :) Out the door $30 for a new CCA, and even less in multi-packs :) But don't forget to look at other offerings such as the SMSL Audio M3, and all the new 2016-17 offerings hitting the street now. I think we're probably due for a CCA upgrade, Version 2.0 of Chromecast Audio, not unlike the Chromecast Video product updates we've seen ;)

I hope connectivity will improve
I was hoping that streaming audio from my NAS would be an easy task, It works great with Deezer, I can shutdown the app while listening to a radio station, and chromecast will keep playing, that's nice. it is a great product for easy tasks, but I really want to see some improvement on connectivity, streaming from my Mac is complicated too, but my number one requirement is to play music form my NAS drive.
